Today’s photo of the week is of the Nydia Lodge in Pelorus Sound, Marlborough.

This DOC managed lodge sleeps 50 people and is nestled at the edge of native bush on the south side of the beautiful Nydia Bay.


Over the summer DOC has several volunteer opportunities across the Marlborough region. Projects include building bike tracks, educational work and campsite and hut hosting.

Free accommodation is offered to campsite and hut hosts as well as a food allowance for volunteers at Kenepuru Head, Cowshed Bay, Camp Bay and Nydia Lodge.

More information can be found on the DOC website.

    Oh I wish my summer wasn’t so busy else I’d be volunteering for sure. Great experience for someone in an idyllic location.
